“HAPPINESS TISSUE BOX” made with Mixed Media

Hi Friends

The festive season has started and we just celebrated the festival of Eid and Raksha Bandhan. Hope you joined in the festivities with your loved ones and would have exchanged gifts with your family and friends. I am sure, most of you would be looking forward to other festivals like Janamashtmi, Ganeshostav, Dusshera, Diwali etc. Today I bring to you a wonderful gift idea which has a very high utility factor too.

Every one of us is using paper napkins. Whether it is Kitchen, Dining table, Car, Work desk or Kids’ study, paper napkins have become integral part of our daily living. Wish we could reinvent this staid and unattractive looking napkin box to go with our surrounding themes. That is exactly what I am trying to change today.

So here am I, Shalini Pahwa, presenting to you my post for this month – “HAPPINESS TISSUE BOX” made with Mixed Media.

The fun with mix media is that you can give the product a look and color that you desire it to be given – in order to make the product gel with its surroundings. I have given a earthy look to the box. I have used laces, trinkets, flowers on the top with a liberal coat of Gesso topped up with Little Lindys Spray. The sides of the box has been painted with Little Lindys Spray using gel medium and stencils to give it a raised (embossed) look.
I am sure you would like this collection.

This month’s challenge has already evoked a good response and I am sure the next 8 days would see more of your entries. The prize for the winner for the month is also Little Lindy-Sweet Treat which I have used to make this tissue box and the tutorial given by me at the beginning of the month. If you had missed that you may see it here.

Have A Nice Day!!!
Happy Crafting!!!
